*Preference Wizard Web Page Setup
Previously, some end users with iPads could not configure their Collaboration Center site as the Preferences Wizard is turned off when viewing Paragon on an iPad.  To mitigate this concern, the Collab Center Site Information content has been added to the Collab Center section of User Preferences.  This allows end users to configure their Collaboration Center Site regardless of the device being used. 

*Map Layers Added
The Collaboration Center and CollabLink applications have been enhanced to include Map Layers.  These are the same map layers found in Paragon which include Parcels, County, Flood, Traffic, Area, etc. 

*Access Listing Details Directly from the Listing Update Notification
A direct link has been added that will take the user to the Collaboration Center’s Listing Detail view from the listing summary of properties included in the client Listing Update email notifications.  Closing the Listing Detail view will return the user to the Collaboration Center home page.


Property History Reports Shows Reference Data
When users add the listing agent and office fields to the Property History they did not have an efficient way to review additional information about the agent or office without changing to another report view.

In order to promote consistency amongst report views and add quick access to pertinent information, the listing agent and office fields in the Property History report have been hyperlinked so that when a user clicks the hyperlinked listing agent or office names, the standard agent or office detail screen will display.  

Reorder Your Results on Google Map Report
Available by popular demand, the ability to reorder listings on the Google Map Report view is included in this release.  Users can now drag and drop the results in any order that they would like on the report.  This will cause the report to refresh so that the numbering associated with the listing in the results and on the map will match.  This enhancement alleviates the need to toggle between the Google Map report and the spreadsheet view to reorder the results because previously reordering could only be done in spreadsheet result views.

Email and Print Update for Estimated Pages
Per customer suggestion, we’ve modified the Estimated Pages column heading to be more descriptive changing it from ‘Pages’ to ‘Est. Pages’.

Rounding Listing Prices Over $1,000,000
Although infrequent, when a listing price is over $1,000,000, the listing marker on Map Searches in Paragon would usually round the price too high or too low.  This has been corrected so that the rounding displays one decimal place.

Precursor Performance Changes for Automatically Displaying Results on Map Search
In preparation for automatically displaying results when accessing the map search (i.e., Map Boundary) in the next Paragon release, a few performance improvements have been made, thus making results return faster: 
  • Results reflect lowest to highest system price, previously it displayed highest to lowest price.
  • Listing data doesn’t load until the user clicks on a cluster or listing price marker.
  • The number of columns returned in the results has been limited to a small few key fields.
Another major improvement is that listing map results will now return 2,500 listings instead of 500.  Because of the performance improvements listed above, the results return faster.

Listing Activity Data Retained for 120 Days
The Listing Activity displayed on the Listing Activity Report in Paragon Listing Maintenance and on the Sell Side of Collaboration Center has been refactored to retain this pertinent information for the previous 120 Days. This change promotes data accuracy and optimizes system performance.

Minimum Photo Size for Listings
To ensure better quality photos are added to listings, a minimum photo requirement has been implemented to prevent uploading photos that are too small alleviating accidental upload of thumbnail-sized photos instead of the full photo of the listing.  If a photo is too small, the user will receive an error while attempting to upload it.  Minimum 640x480
